Thanksgiving and a little show and tell

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I am. David and I are walking across the street to Captain's house to enjoy a wonderful feast with our fun friends. I'm making Sweet Potato Fluff, Roasted Veggies and a Pumpkin Pie.

I decided to hang "Peter and Peter Pumpkin Eaters" in my dining room for October and November.

I think it looks pretty good in here and reminds me of how much David loves pumpkin pie. He is having shoulder surgery tomorrow, so he will have to learn to use his left hand for pie eating this year. ;)

I realized I didn't share the photos from last month's guild meeting, so here we go!

Marianne shared her kid's donation quilt. I love these colors. 

Gerri shared the quilt she made from all the Christmas blocks we made last year. She was a lucky winner of the blocks at our Christmas party.

She also shared this faaaaaaaaaabulous quilt she made from a Pat Sloan quilt along. I love it!

This block is super cute with the candy corn flowers! I need to take photos of Gerri's house. She has the most wonderful vignettes filled with quilted and stitched pieces. 

Mary shared pineapple art quilts which were made by her art quilt group. These were for the Day of Sharing in which the theme was pineapples.

This is Mary's quilt. 

I also loved how she made this diagram of a pineapple. Y'all know I can't grow stuff so this was amazing to me. I will admit that I thought pineapples came from trees like bananas. Hee,hee,hee.

I want to send a CONGRATULATIONS shout out to Mary as well. She had an art quilt juried into a local art show. Way to go Mary!

Lori shared this quilt block from the guild's mystery quilt along. I adore those colors!

She also shared this beauty. Nothing more fun than a red, white and blue quilt.

Peggy aka, the perfect point maker, shared her kiddo quilt. I think it is really cute.

However, I asked her to bring the pineapple quilt she showed at Day of Sharing. I looooooooove this!

Here's a close up. Simply gorgeous! Peggy always amazes me. She is very talented.

Sandy shared this table topper. Sorry the photo isn't that good, she was wiggly when I was trying to get the shot because everyone was asking her questions about it. Isn't it cool?

Linda, aka, the bag lady shared this cute bag. She makes the most wonderful bags. I did a trade with her (love to trade things). She will be making me a few cute bags. I have zipper phobia, so I was really happy she was willing to make a trade.  :)

Renee shared this adorable kiddo quilt. I looooooooooove this fabric! LOVE IT!

And she shared this cute car quilt

and this cute Care Bear quilt. I know the kiddos will love all of them!

Pam shared her fun quilts too.

This one she said she appliqued the stars on after the quilting had been done. I think it turned out great!

Carolyn shared her kiddo quilt. She loves bright colors and makes such wonderful bright quilts. She can also knit and is making a gorgeous afghan for her son in law. I will have to take a photo for you.

Well, there is the show and tell from our October meeting. I won't be there for the November meeting because of David's surgery. I am looking forward to our December meeting and party. Instead of doing a block exchange, we are doing a pot holder exchange. I think it will be really fun and I want to come up with something unique to make for this. Any ideas you can share with me?

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina too!

Good morning my friend! What an easy peasy Thanksgiving it will be (travel-wise!) - we have done that before and it's fun to simply walk across the street to the fun. OH HOW I PRAY David's surgery goes well, and especially his recovery. Yep, the man will need to train himself to be a lefty for pie eating!!!!!

Such gorgeous ideas here, and it's always a pleasure to see the ideas these women put together. HAVE FUN my friend! Anita

Kate said...

Oh my, your guild makes beautiful quilts!

Tammy said...

Beautiful quilts you shared... Your dining room is gorgeous...Love the table and chairs addition to that gorgeous wall hanging

edie said...

Michelle, I just discovered your delightful blog! Where have I been??? I have one of those gotta know questions for you, and I tried to email you through your "contact me" link, but just couldn't make it work (yes, I'm truly technologically challenged). Any chance you could respond with contact info? I do understand if you can't, love your blog, will visit often.

Loris said...

Fun quilt show :-)
Prayers for David's surgery and smooth recovery. Remember that ice packs are your friend!

Shirley said...

Hi, I loved the quilt show. I am hoping after Christmas I can embroidery on one of my lap quilts. Your Thanksgiving sounds fun. I don't know what I am going to do yet. I am looking forward to Christmas. My oldest will be home the 27th for a week. It will fly for sure. Saying prayers for David's surgery that all goes well and he heals fast. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

This is a wonderful way to end my day viewing all these amazing talented ladies projects. Your dining room is beautiful and your Peter wall hanging is perfect for this blessed season.

I now have me 4 tickets to the big Estuary Quilt raffle in early December. If I win I will send a picture!!!

Hope the shoulder surgery is minor. I had rotator cuff surgery and it is a real effort to get healed and rehabbed - but TOTALLY worth it!

Tina said...

I am in love with your Peter and Peter Pumpkin Eaters wallhanging!! It's just wonderful and your guild is sure a talented bunch of folks too! Sending good thoughts in David's direction!!!

KMSC said...

I love your guild's show and tell. Very talented ladies!

However, please tell Lori that one of the corners in her block is sewn on incorrectly. (I would hate to have her sew this block into a quilt the way it is!)

Sherry said...

It was fun to see all of the projects from your guild. I too love your Peter and Peter wall hanging. I have not met with my quilting friends for quite a while and look forward to getting back together with them in January. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Kris said...

Its nice to see Peter and Peter again this year!! Your Guild show and tell is great!!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Peter & Peter look perfect in your dining room and amazing quilts from your guild as always, they are so talented and so prolific! Healing energy heading to David and positive thoughts that his surgery goes without a hitch. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast with the Captain!

Allie said...

Praying David's surgery goes well! Peter and Peter look AMAZING in your dining room. Such a gorgeous little quilt! I also really love that pineapple quilt, and all the projects - what a talented group you belong to!

Do a search on pinterest for potholders - you'll get more ideas than you can look at in a day, lol! You never know, might spark something in that oh so creative brain of yours - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
